Chapter Summary

Wyclif 's books on justice, law and dominion constituted the core of what his Czech admirers called his Summa in theologie. It is remarkable that almost all the themes of the other books which are supposed to be part of his 'theological summa' are an integral part of his discourse on (human or civil) dominion. Wyclif 's books on dominion confront us with more technical difficulties. The tracts on divine dominion break off abruptly, the ones on the dominion of angels are missing, the tract on dominion in the state of innocence is fragmentary, whereas the three books bound together in the two separate Vienna manuscripts under the title of De civili dominio, are, apparently, only loosely connected, even though they could have been treated by Wyclif 's critics as an integral whole.

Keywords:Czech admirers; De civili dominio; divine dominion De civili dominio; theological summa; Wyclif's books
